Annotation

“The Golden Fleece And the Heroes Who Lived Before Achilles” is Padraic Colum's classic retelling of principally the ancient mythological tales of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Also included are tales of the creation of the heavens and the earth, Zeus's battle with the Titans, Pandora's box (a jar in this case), Persephone in the Underworld, and the adventures of Hercules. With numerous illustrations by Willy Pogany these ancient myths are once again brought to life.
